Oral cancer screening
The professionals at US Dental are trained in the early detection of precancerous and cancerous lesion in the mouth. During every dental visit, comprehensive evaluation of tongue, cheeks, lips, floor of the mouth, hard and soft palate is done as part of routine oral cancer screening.
Upon identification of any suspicious lesion, thorough medical and dental history of patient is taken to rule out traumatic or other health related causes.
Suspicious lesions are then closely monitored over 2 weeks period. If lesions do not resolve within two weeks and if there is no contributing medical condition, several diagnostic steps are taken to reach confirmed diagnosis.
